The recruiting got a late start for Dezmon Briscoe. The three-star receiver helped Cedar Hill to a state title so he couldn't take visits in December. But January became a busy month for him.
On Friday morning he ended the recruiting process and decided on a Big 12 school.
"He pulled the trigger this morning and committed to Kansas," said Joey McGuire, the head coach at Cedar Hill. "He talked to Tim Beck and then Mark Mangino and told them he wanted to be a Jayhawk. He spent some time on my office and he talked things over with his mother before he made the call."

Kansas got the first shot at Briscoe followed by Boise State. This week he took his third visit to Iowa. He another visit to Missouri scheduled, but decided he was ready to make a decision.
"You know he just got back from Iowa on a mid-week visit," McGuire said. "He really liked all three schools. But the chance to play in the Big 12 where his parents could see him play was also a big draw for Kansas."
Briscoe had offers from Kansas, Oklahoma State, Boise State, Iowa, Missouri, TCU, Tulsa, and Houston. McGuire believes his best days are ahead.
"He won't turn 18 until August and I think his best are ahead of him," McGuire said. "He has incredible hands. He made a catch in the semis against Garland where he was almost six feet in the air. He is a great leaper. He runs great routes and practices very hard and they will like that at Kansas."
